Should we talk about the E-Type Roadster in general? No, there is no need as we are talking more about an icon than a classic car in the strict sense. But even the icons have their exceptions: the most appreciated series is certainly the first, that is the one characterized by covered headlights, while the… Read More Headache: 1967 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 O.T.S.
An icon needs no introduction and the Jaguar E-Type, particularly if a first series, is no exception. Many have been produced and many have survived, especially if we compare them to other sports cars of the same era, yet the quantity of examples still existing has not inflated their charm: the value of this model… Read More Pasadena recluse: 1965 Jaguar E-Type O.T.S.
The 70s, for the automotive world, were a very “experimental” period in which the foundations were laid for the future of the car: even Jaguar tried to do its best. Let’s not forget that the Jaguar E-Type has been in production for more than ten years and the MK sedan was now too obsolete to… Read More 2 for 1: 1977 Jaguar XJC-12 plus XJ-12
We may not be the only ones who have never seen a four-seater Jaguar XK150, yet here it is in all its strangeness. It is apparently a creation of Jaguar enthusiast Geoffrey Stevens in the 1975 to 1977 period. He was a Jaguar enthusiast and worked as an industrial chemist near Swindon, he and his… Read More Four seater cat: 1960 Jaguar XK150 Shooting Brake ‘Foxbat’
There is only one XJ13 built by Jaguar in 1965 in order to participate (and possibly win) in subsequent editions of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but that never happened. It never happened for a number of reasons: the difficulty of developing the car, combined with the lack of interest of the top management… Read More The cat in the hat: 1965 Jaguar XJ13 Replica by RCR
The make and model of this project need no introduction: even those who are not enthusiastic about classic cars probably know this unmistakable profile. The spider version obviously has the peculiarity of the canvas roof, but our personal opinion is that the coupé profile is difficult to beat even by cars that are worth ten… Read More Aged Burgundy: 1962 Jaguar E-Type FHC
There are few cars, among those ever built, beautiful even if neglected and rusty. This is precisely the case with the E-Type roadster. In addition to being a spider (technically the name given by Jaguar for this version is OTS or Open Two Seater), this car is a true icon of world motoring along with… Read More Carmen red: 1966 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 O.T.S.
We can say that there is no better way to start the year 2021 with a survivor, even though in this case it is a car. Car, we have said, but certainly not a trivial one: it is in fact an automotive icon of the twentieth century whose image has also been too inflated and… Read More The survivor: 1967 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 O.T.S.
All fans of classic cars like patina: if it develops on a black surface, it is even more fascinating. The surface we are talking about belongs to a Jaguar XK 140 model DHC: it is the more “civilized” spider version, less extreme than the OTS (the one with “low” doors, so to speak) but always… Read More Dark matter: 1955 Jaguar XK 140 DHC
If not everyone, most of you have already seen a Jaguar E-Type painted with the Union Jack scheme in the 1999 film “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” In 1999, the Jaguar E-Type, even those belonging to the first series, had prices far from the current ones: today thinking of painting an E-Type in… Read More Groovy roadster: 1965 Jaguar E-Type OTS
